Description

Flumes is an open-source service we developed at Fluendo with the purpose of improving our QA process. It was designed with our multimedia playback/decoding products in mind. The main goals of the service are, to provide easy access to multimedia files of concrete specifications and a feeding mechanism to reproduction tools or test automation frameworks. As such, it becomes the connecting link between multimedia test collections and testing tools.

It consists of diverse technologies that allow managing, editing, viewing and searching metadata information of multimedia content. It is developed in Python 3, uses Glib and the gst-discoverer tool and stores metadata in an SQLite database. The service runs as a daeamon on Linux, constantly monitoring your collection's path, ensuring that the metadata database stays up-to-date.
